    The dataset contains three records of moth specimens of the family Gelechiidae collected from 2015 to 2018 in continental Portugal. The study of these specimens resulted in the description of a new genus, Mondeguina Corley & Rosete, 2020, a new species M. atlanticella Corley & Rosete, 2020, and a new genus placement for Catatinagma agenjoi (Gozmány, 1954) previously in the genus Apatetris Staudinger, 1880 (Corley et al. (2020)). The new genus contains M. mediterranella (Nel & Varenne, 2012) and M. atlanticella Corley & Rosete, 2020, a new Portuguese endemic species, described based on differences found in the male and female genitalia and on DNA barcodes. Specimens were detected and captured using mercury-vapor lamps to attract the insects. Captured specimens were identified to species level and preserved in 96% ethanol. A tissue sample, a leg, was collected from each individual, from which DNA was extracted. The DNA barcoding of these specimens was conducted within the InBIO Barcoding Initiative (IBI), funded by EnvMetaGen and PORBIOTA projects. DNA barcode sequences were deposited in BOLD (Barcode of Life Data System) online database. DNA extracts are deposited in the IBI collection at the CIBIO (Research Center in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources).

    The dataset contains one record of the species Cochylimorpha punctiferana (Ragonot, 1881) (Lepidoptera, Tortricidae) collected in continental Portugal in 2016.The study of this specimen resulted in the resurrection of the Portuguese endemic species C. punctiferana from synonymy with C. discopunctana (Eversmann, 1844) based on clear differences in female genitalia and DNA barcode by Corley et al. (2020). A tissue sample, one leg, was removed to be used for DNA extraction. Sequencing of the 658 bp COI DNA barcode was conducted within the InBIO Barcoding Initiative (IBI) and the DNA sequence was submitted to BOLD (Barcode of Life Data System) and GenBank databases. The preserved specimen and DNA extract are deposited in the IBI collection at the CIBIO (Research Center in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources).

    The dataset contains eight records of moth specimens of the genus Ypsolopha collected from 2015 to 2017 in continental Portugal. The study of these specimens resulted in the description of a new species, Y. rhinolophi (Corley, 2019), present in northern Portugal and south-east France, similar to Y. alpella (Denis & Schiffermüller, 1775) and Y. lucella (Fabricius, 1775), based on clear differences in male and female genitalia and on DNA barcodes in Corley et al. (2019). Specimens were detected and captured by direct search of the environment during the day, with adults hand-netted and larvae reared to adulthood, and by night using mercury-vapor lamps to attract the insects. Captured specimens were identified to species level and preserved in 96% ethanol. A tissue sample, usually a leg, was collected from each individual, from which DNA was extracted. The DNA barcoding of these specimens was conducted within the InBIO Barcoding Initiative (IBI), funded by EnvMetaGen and PORBIOTA projects. DNA barcode sequences were deposited in BOLD (Barcode of Life Data System) and GenBank online databases. Preserved specimens and DNA extracts are deposited in the IBI collection at the CIBIO (Research Center in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources).

    The dataset contains 203 records of Diptera species collected from 2014 to 2018 in continental Portugal (Ferreira et al., 2020). The species represented in the dataset, 154 in total, correspond to about 10% of the known fly diversity of continental Portugal, and contribute to the knowledge on the DNA barcodes and distribution of Portuguese Diptera. Specimens were captured during fieldwork directed specifically for the sampling of Diptera using different methodologies and stored in 96% ethanol. All specimens were morphologically identified to species level. A tissue sample, usually a leg, was collected from each individual, from which DNA was extracted. The DNA barcoding of these specimens was conducted within the InBIO Barcoding Initiative (IBI), funded by EnvMetaGen and PORBIOTA projects. DNA barcode sequences were deposited in BOLD (Barcode of Life Data System) online database. Preserved specimens and DNA extracts are deposited in the IBI collection at the CIBIO (Research Center in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources).

    The dataset contains 349 records of Lacewings (Neuroptera) species collected from 2006 to 2019 in continental Portugal. Specimens were detected and captured by direct search of the environment and by using both UV and mercury-vapor lamps to attract the insects. Captured specimens were preserved in 96% ethanol. All captured specimens were identified to species level. The dataset “The InBIO Barcoding Initiative Database: Lacewings (Neuroptera) 02” is part of a group of Neuroptera datasets published by the InBIO Barcoding Initiative (IBI). The first dataset, “The InBIO Barcoding Initiative Database: Lacewings (Neuroptera) 01” (doi.org/10.15468/6cyrxd), has already been made available through GBIF. IBI is funded by the EnvMetaGen and PORBIOTA projects. All specimens are deposited in the IBI collection at the CIBIO (Research Center in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources).

    The dataset contains 135 records of Hemiptera species collected from 2015 to 2019 in continental Portugal (Sousa et al., 2021). The species represented in the dataset, 90 in total, correspond to about 7.5% of the known true bugs diversity of continental Portugal, and contribute to the knowledge on the DNA barcodes and distribution of Portuguese Hemiptera. Specimens were captured during fieldwork by direct search of specimens or by sweeping the vegetation and stored in 96% ethanol. All specimens were identified to species level. A tissue sample, usually a leg, was collected from each individual, from which DNA was extracted. The DNA barcoding of these specimens was conducted within the InBIO Barcoding Initiative (IBI), funded by EnvMetaGen and PORBIOTA projects. DNA barcode sequences were deposited in BOLD (Barcode of Life Data System) online database. Preserved specimens and DNA extracts are deposited in the IBI collection at the CIBIO (Research Center in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources).

    The dataset contains five records of moth specimens of the genus Isotrias collected from 2012 to 2016 in continental Portugal. The study of these specimens resulted in the discovery of sexual dimorphism in the species Isotrias penedana Trematerra, 2013, and in the description of the previously unknown female of the species in Corley and Ferreira (2017). Specimens were detected and captured by direct search of the environment during the day, with adults’ hand-netted, and by night using mercury-vapor lamps to attract the insects. Captured specimens were identified to species level and kept in dry storage. A tissue sample, a leg, was collected from each individual, from which DNA was extracted. The DNA barcoding of these specimens was conducted within the InBIO Barcoding Initiative (IBI), funded by EnvMetaGen and PORBIOTA projects. DNA barcode sequences were deposited in BOLD (Barcode of Life Data System) and GenBank online databases. DNA extracts are deposited in the IBI collection at the CIBIO (Research Center in Biodiversity and Genetic Resources).
